My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: TX
I was wondering. If an individual files a discrimination case against their employer and the case goes to mediation, and if the employer gives the individual an agreement to sign during mediation which states that they will no longer look for future employment with this company isn't this considered retaliation? Or does retaliation not apply here? Is it also common for the mediator to utilize tactics that instill fear?
I realize that many of the mediators are overloaded with cases and they want to close each case as quickly as possible, but is this legal and common practice?
